2018 Player Reviews: # 12 Dom Tyson

Recommended Posts

IRON DOM  

Tyson had a mixed season and found himself out of the main midfield set up and, on one or two occasions, out of the senior team. He put in some excellent displays on a wing in the lead up to the finals and overcame a fractured forearm in the final round to play in all three of the club’s finals.  Looks to be bound for another club in the trades as early as today.

Is it just me or has he gotten progressively a little worse by the year since he came to MFC?

He's gone from a star in the making in 2014 (11 brownlow votes, kicking 16.6) to a battler in 2018 (0 brownlow votes,  kicking 2.6)

agree. i think because he isn't playing enough game time in his position. If he played inside mid the whole game he'd probably rack up 25+ a game and get votes.

And we'd be finishing 10th.

He's progressing the same rate as Btock Mclean.

Started out as a highly talented junior who shows huge potential early on in his career,  lean form and injuries start to take a toll, starts to lose his pace and gets caught far too often, his disposal by foot has evaporated to the point where he legit struggles to hit a 15m target. 

He'll have games next year where he'll win 25 plus touches, but he'll rarely hurts the opposition and will just turn the ball over badly by getting caught or missing a target.

Shame because i was a big Dom Tyson fan.

Got moved out of the midfield by a bunch of young guns, now looking for a trade which will probably be North.

It's hard not to agree with you on this one BBP.

I also think it's more a case not so much of Tyson progressively going backwards but also of others going past him at a rate of knots. Viney, Brayshaw, Oliver and even the likes of ANB, Harmes have excelled this year where Dom hasn't.

Whether it's down to work rate, complete seasons or just natural progression and development I don't know, but I suspect a combination of all three

My ex North player acquaintance rang me in a panic this morning and said the worst thing he could imagine had happened: Tyson to North.

Tyson is a great ball winner, when playing on the ball.  Does he think he has more time to get rid of the ball?  He has also been compromised by trying to shrug tackles.  These two aspects have caused turnovers.  So if he eradicates these aspects, he will be a great win for North.

At Melbourne he would have been getting less time in the middle, and his impact would continue to drop.

I wish him well

He was a very good contributor but the side changed for the better with some outstanding new talents across the midfield. Wish Dom the best of luck and footballing fortunes at North and thanks for the great efforts over the past few years.

He was the right player for us at the time. Gave us some hope and helped us reshape the midfield. Both the team and game have evolved, Dom unfortunately hasn't.

I wish him well. He will go alright at North.

Always overrated on here, but as others have stated, he was a super contributor for us as an inside mid in that first year he arrived.

Never quite 'came on' as a former number three pick.

Good luck to the fella.

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
